Hi schmidthouse,

Running that version. No problems. This solution kept me out of harm's way and it halts me at crucial moments to ponder on what to allow and what to keep blocked. First inform, than decide. Later go over the auto allowed list.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Given RejZoRs previous comments some considerable time ago'.

It's too trigger happy on anything not having a digital signature. Not sure what kind of "Ai" it's using but from my experience it doesn't seem that clever. Of course i scores wonderful in malware only tests then. But if you throw in clean software, it becomes less than excellent because in the end user has to make most of the actual decisions.

avast!'s Hardened Mode (Aggressive) seems far more intelligent, its whitelists more up to date. It's just more usable. You can actually have it enabled even as advanced user and it'll rarely bug you.

Has the program become any more Intelligent ?

Hi David
I've been running this program since the early beginning and in the early development did act somewhat touchy or nagging if you will.
I now rarely feel the program is not acting intelligently and can be configured (Pro) very precisely.
I run it because it's a reliable, effective security layer for .exe monitoring and control. IMHO
Keeping in mind "Intelligent" is totally subjective. It's not everybody's cup of tea ;)

One really only can judge for themselves by becoming familiar with the software over a period of time. For me, it has responded the way I expected and has saved my ass on occasion.
